Russian Grand Prix: Valtteri Bottas beats Sebastian Vettel to first F1 win

first_imgValtteri Bottas claimed his first Formula One win on Sunday after holding off a late charge from Sebastian Vettel in the Russian Grand Prix.Mercedes driver Bottas, who started third but slipstreamed into the lead off the start, finished 0.6 seconds ahead of Ferrari’s Vettel. Kimi Raikkonen took third in the second Ferrari, 10.3 seconds further back.”Took quite a while, more than 80 races,” said Bottas, who had his debut with Williams in 2013. “Worth the wait.”The 27-year-old Finn joined Mercedes after last year’s champion, Nico Rosberg, announced his retirement.Vettel, who had started on pole, hunted Bottas down in the latter part of the race. However, he was left fuming after his hopes of passing the Finn on the last lap were dashed by having to lap the Williams of Felipe Massa. “What was that?” Vettel asked over the team radio in frustration that Massa hadn’t moved out of his way swiftly enough, though the German was in conciliatory mood afterward.”It doesn’t matter,” Vettel said of the incident with Massa. “This is the man of the race today, big congrats to Valtteri.”Vettel’s second place meant the German extended his standings lead to 13 points over Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton, who trailed in fourth after suffering overheating trouble. It was a lonely race for Hamilton, who had large gaps with Raikkonen ahead and Max Verstappen behind.”Why is my car overheating? We’re out of the race now,” Hamilton told his team on lap 16. The British driver never came close to third-placed Raikkonen, and the gap stood at more than 25 seconds at the checkered flag.advertisementWith Russian President Vladimir Putin looking on, Red Bull driver Verstappen claimed fifth, ahead of the Force Indias of Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon. Eighth went to Renault’s Nico Hulkenberg, with Massa and Toro Rosso’s Carlos Sainz claiming the final points.Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo was the most notable retirement, parking his car on lap 6 after the right-rear brakes caught fire.There was a safety-car stoppage after barely half a lap when Romain Grosjean’s Haas hit the Renault of Jolyon Palmer on the inside of a right-hand bend, putting both cars into the wall. Bottas held on to his lead comfortably at the restart in a race with few overtaking opportunities.McLaren’s Fernando Alonso is still yet to reach the checkered flag this season after his car broke down on the formation lap.last_img read more

As PM Scheer says hed scrutinize CBCs work for Canadian emphasis

first_imgOTTAWA — Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer says if he is elected prime minister in the fall, he’ll want to make sure the CBC is telling enough Canadian stories.In an interview with The Canadian Press this week, Scheer said he’d like to scrutinize the national public broadcaster to see that it is “focusing on Canadian stories.”“It’s appropriate to look and say — when the CBC was first introduced decades ago, there wasn’t the ability to get content on smartphones, there wasn’t the ability to get hundreds and hundreds of channels on TV through satellites,” Scheer said.“We have a situation now where we have a much different model when it comes to news and media and content creation — and it’s time that we look at how the CBC fits into all of that.”Scheer also pointed to an increased focus on international stories and, in particular, American politics across all CBC platforms in recent years.“When we look and see how much coverage is devoted on CBC to U.S. politics, the inner workings of U.S. politics, making sure that it’s focused on the things that are going on here in Canada — I think that’s something that many Canadians have said we should ensure that it’s focused on the core mandate of being concentrated on Canada.”A CBC spokesperson defended the international focus, saying the corporation is focused on covering news wherever it happens, to help Canadians understand the implications of important events.“Whether it’s Brexit or the Middle East, U.S. politics, pipeline debates or flooding in local communities, Canadians trust CBC/Radio-Canada to keep them informed,” Kerry Kelly, the Crown corporation’s senior manager of public relations, said in a statement.When asked if he would reduce government funding to the CBC, Scheer did not directly answer, saying that he has only ever promoted the idea of ensuring the broadcaster is doing the work it is mandated to do.But he did question whether the CBC’s foray into soliciting advertising revenues has created a “distorting effect” on the media market — with a publicly funded broadcaster competing against struggling private news companies for dwindling advertising dollars.“We have to make sure the CBC’s impact in that is not creating an undue hurdle against those private-sector entities that are trying to stay afloat and now have to compete with a government-subsidized entity that is also going out into the market to sell ads to get viewership.”According to its 2017-18 annual report, the CBC generated $318.4 million in total advertising revenues across all of its media and languages that year, with $42.6 million of it coming from digital advertising. This is in addition to over $1.2 billion in funding it received in the same year from the federal government.The Trudeau government has pledged an additional $150 million to the CBC every year through to 2021 as part of a major boost to cultural spending rolled out shortly after the 2015 election.The corporation acknowledged in its annual report that digital ad revenues are growing, but said this growth is “not significant enough to offset the decline observed in TV advertising.”  It also pointed to increased competition from “large global players” — presumably companies with streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon — that are not subject to the same regulations as Canadian media companies and that do not contribute financially to the Canadian media ecosystem as the biggest threat to the Canadian media market.“These companies are not simply distributors of content; they are major investors in and creators of content, substantially increasing production budgets,” the annual report says.“They have access to combined potential markets 100 times greater than that of Canada and can use economies of scale to monetize their programming and infrastructure investments. They have access to massive amounts of data, allowing them to effectively develop and curate content for their audiences. All of this makes it harder for domestic regulated companies to compete.”Teresa Wright, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

McCartney Madonna and Cotillard call for release of Arctic 30

Beginning the letter “Dear Vladimir”, McCartney underlined the positive intent of the protesters, and closed with a reference to his Beatles past:“Forty-five years ago I wrote a song about Russia for the White Album, back when it wasn’t fashionable for English people to say nice things about your country. That song had one of my favourite Beatles lines in it: “Been away so long I hardly knew the place, gee it’s good to be back home.“Could you make that come true for the Greenpeace prisoners?”The arrests have been widely criticized. All 30 people aboard the Greenpeace icebreaker were initially charged with piracy, but the charges were latter reduced to hooliganism. Under Russian law, the penalty for those found guilty could be up to seven years in jail.On October 10th, Edward Norton described the situation as “a scandal” on Twitter, and on October 5th, Jude Law and Vivienne Westwood joined protests in London.At the arctic30support website, hundres of further celebrities – including Ewan McGregor, Flea, Juliette Lewis and Daryl Hannah – have been leaving messages of support.

Scarlet wins Ohio State footballs Spring Game 3114

CINCINNATI – Gusty winds did little to prevent Ohio State from airing out the football during its annual Spring Game Saturday afternoon at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati. With parts of Ohio Stadium undergoing surface work, the Buckeyes traveled about two hours southwest to the Queen City for the 2013 edition of an intrasquad scrimmage between the Scarlet and Gray teams. After a game that saw its quarterbacks throw for a combined total of 433 yards, the Scarlet team prevailed, 31-14. While limited in the running game because of a no-contact black jersey, junior quarterback Braxton Miller finished the day 16 of 25 for 217 yards and two touchdowns. His counterpart, redshirt senior Kenny Guiton, totaled 151 yards and a touchdown on 13 of 22 attempts. After guiding the Buckeyes to a 12-0 finish last season, OSU coach Urban Meyer hovered just yards back from play on the field as the teams battled it out amid 18-25 mph winds in front of a speckled crowd of 37, 643. “This was a great day for Ohio State football – to come back to (a place), I consider this partly my hometown,” Meyer said during a press conference after the game. By his own admittance, Meyer said he intended it to be a day where the Buckeyes threw the ball more than they ran it. “Obviously, it was a pass-heavy game – an area that we were not very good at last year that we have to get better,” he said. Miller would set the tone early – launching a 49-yard rocket to junior wide receiver Evan Spencer on the scrimmage first play. Three plays later, Miller found junior wide receiver Devin Smith for a 20-yard touchdown with 9:08 to play in the first quarter. Miller said he’s gotten more comfortable throwing the ball. “Just knowing the play, how the play is developed and how it’s going to move. I can just move out of the pocket and know where the guy’s going to be,” he said. It’s something Meyer took note of. He said Saturday’s marked improvement in the passing game was a “continuation of what started all spring.” In fact, Meyer said it’s the type of development that could vault OSU into talk of being one of the nation’s best offenses. “I’ve spent a lot of time talking about a part of our game – that if we can figure that out – I would be disappointed if we don’t have the best offense in the Big Ten,” he said. It’s a notion that seems too early to validate, but one perhaps with the potential to come to fruition somewhere down the line. Meyer, though, maintained it’s a concept that hinges upon the play of his offensive line – which lost only former right tackle Reid Fragel. And with senior left tackle Jack Mewhort held out of the game for precautionary reasons, Meyer called the “fifth spoke of the offensive line” a “legitimate concern.” “Unless we get that fixed, there go the best offense in the Big Ten,” he said. Meyer’s concern seemed warranted, as sophomore defensive linemen Noah Spence and Adolphus Washington combined for five sacks in the first half and seven total. It bought time for Guiton and the Gray team to answer in the second quarter. The Buckeyes’ backup quarterback found senior receiver Chris Fields from six yards out to tie the game, 7-7, with 4:35 remaining in the half. Guiton, who played sparingly last season, said he was content with his performance. “I thought I did pretty good, I got the offense down. I’m moving forward, trying to get everybody else making sure we know what we’re doing,” he said. Thanks to an eight-play, 59-yard drive, though, the Scarlet team again seized the lead after Miller found senior wide receiver Corey “Philly” Brown in the back of the end zone for a 3-yard touchdown. Miller’s squad would head into halftime with a 14-7 advantage that they would not relinquish. Having been harassed most of the afternoon by the Gray defensive line, Miller rolled out of the pocket before scampering for a 5-yard touchdown with 6:25 to play in the third. Senior kicker Drew Basil tacked on a 25-yard field goal more than two minutes later to make it 24-7 in favor of the Scarlet team. Behind sophomore wide receiver Michael Thomas, the Gray would make a dent in the deficit after sophomore quarterback Cardale Jones found Thomas from four yards out with 8:44 to play in the fourth. Jones finished with 65 yards and a touchdown on 7 of 16 attempts. In a instance of trickery and changing of allegiances, Fields, who started the contest with the Gray team, scored on a 6-yard reverse play, pushing the Scarlet team’s lead to 31-14 with 4:41 to play in the game. It would all but seal the Scarlet team’s second-straight victory in the Spring Game. OSU is scheduled to open the 2013 season against Buffalo Aug. 31 at Ohio Stadium. read more

China calls on Canada to free Huawei CFO or face consequences

FILE PHOTO: Meng Wanzhou, Executive Board Director of the Chinese technology giant Huawei, attends a session of the VTB Capital Investment Forum “Russia Calling!” in Moscow, Russia October 2, 2014. REUTERS/Alexander BibikBEIJING (Reuters) – China warned Canada on Saturday that there would be severe consequences if it did not immediately release Huawei Technologies Co Ltd’s [HWT.UL] chief financial officer, calling the case “extremely nasty”.Meng Wanzhou, Huawei’s global chief financial officer, was arrested in Canada on Dec. 1 and faces extradition to the United States, which alleges that she covered up her company’s links to a firm that tried to sell equipment to Iran despite sanctions.The executive is also the daughter of the founder of Huawei.If extradited to the United States, Meng would face charges of conspiracy to defraud multiple financial institutions, a Canadian court heard on Friday, with a maximum sentence of 30 years for each charge.No decision was reached at the extradition hearing after nearly six hours of arguments and counter-arguments, and the hearing was adjourned until Monday.In a short statement, China’s Foreign Ministry said that Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng had issued the warning to release Meng to Canada’s ambassador in Beijing, summoning him to lodge a “strong protest”.Canada’s arrest of Meng at the request of the United States while she was changing plane in Vancouver was a serious breach of her lawful rights, Le said.The move “ignored the law, was unreasonable” and was in its very nature “extremely nasty”, he added.“China strongly urges the Canadian side to immediately release the detained person, and earnestly protect their lawful, legitimate rights, otherwise Canada must accept full responsibility for the serious consequences caused.”The statement did not elaborate.Meng’s arrest was on the same day that U.S. President Donald Trump met in Argentina with China’s Xi Jinping to look for ways to resolve an escalating trade war between the world’s two largest economies.The news of her arrest has roiled stock markets and drawn condemnation from Chinese authorities, although Trump and his top economic advisers have played down its importance to trade talks after the two leaders agreed to a truce.A Huawei spokesman said on Friday the company has “every confidence that the Canadian and U.S. legal systems will reach the right conclusion.” The company has said it complies with all applicable export control and sanctions laws and other regulations.

Android grows while RIM groans at drop in market share

first_imgYesterday was a good day for Larry Page to be taking over the reigns of Google when it comes to the company’s mobile strategy. That’s because Google’s Android operating system is continuing to eat up market share from its competitors. The latest U.S. mobile subscriber market share report by comScore for February shows that Android now accounts for one in three smartphone users. It also seems that Research In Motion’s (RIM) was hurt the most by Android’s continuing rise.In November of last year RIM held the top spot when it came to smartphone platforms with a market share of 33.5%. At that time Google was just holding its #2 ranking against Apple. February of this year was a completely different story, though. Android had climbed to the top and now sits securely at the #1 position with 33% market share while RIM dropped an incredible 4.6% during the same period. Microsoft and Palm dropped 1.3% and 1.1% respectively. Apple in turn didn’t lose any market share, instead making a modest gain of 0.2%. Since Verizon Wireless just launched their version of the iPhone in February, Apple’s market share could continue to rise.Overall, 69.5 million people in the U.S. owned smartphones during the three months measured in comScore’s report. That total is up 13% from the three month period ending November 2010. It is safe to assume that some of Google’s gains came as a result of new smartphone owners as the top three smartphone manufacturers cited in the report are Samsung, LG and Motorola. All three manufacturers produce and have some of the best selling Android smartphones on the market.Read more at comScoreBrian’s OpinionBased on this report, it seems that Apple really doesn’t have much to worry about, at least for now, when it comes to Android causing a loss in market share. Android will stunt the iPhone’s growth, but shouldn’t be dramatically detrimental to it. The same can’t be said for RIM, though.The writing is on the wall. RIM is losing ground and losing ground fast. If Android’s current adoption rate continues RIM’s market share could drop by 25% by February of next year. Unfortunately, RIM and Apple both share something in common that may be losing favor with the majority of smartphone users. Both companies have proprietary hardware with proprietary operating systems. While that has its advantages, as I have previously pointed out, it’s not helping the companies when it comes to achieving aggressive growth of their platforms.It’s clear that because of the continued loss of market share RIM has adopted the “if you can’t beat them, join them” business plan. The company has already announced that its new PlayBook will be able to run Android applications thanks to a virtual player. It makes sense that BlackBerry handhelds running Android apps may not be that far behind, but time will only tell if such a strategy works for RIM.last_img read more

In the middle of the week, the group traveled to Washington, D.C. where they developed personal advocacy plans and received more training on issues and how to effectively carry their message to the Hill from the Washington staff at various national organizations, including John Gordley, director of the ASA Washington office. The group also participated in Hill visits with legislators from their states.Leadership At Its Best Program participants are nominated by their state soybean association. This year’s class members included: Tyler Clay, Mississippi; Josh Gackle, North Dakota; Kent Grotelueschen, Nebraska; Darin Johnson, Minnesota; Jared Nash, Kansas; Charlie Roberts, Tennessee; Jordan Scott, South Dakota; and David Walton, Iowa.ASA appreciates the continued support provided by Syngenta to develop future leaders for the agriculture industry.

Inflatable Moes Tavern Is A Dive Bar For Your Back Yard

first_img Fiber-Based Six-Pack Can Rings Offer Eco-Friendly Alternative to PlasticEven More Kellogg’s Cereal Gets Re-Born as Craft Beer Stay on target 19 out of 20 kids say that inflatables are a ton of fun. The numbers are about the same with adults, except they typically say they’re fun after showing the kids why there’s a weight limit warning. If only there were more inflatables out there designed for adults!Well, it turns out there are… you just have to know where to look. Some of them are pretty darned awesome, too, like this inflatable Moe’s Tavern. It’s a little piece of Springfield that you can blow up in your very own backyard!Yes, thanks to the whimsical minds at Inflatable.pub you too can now drown your workday sorrows like Homer, Lenny, Carl, and Barney have for the past two decades. You and up to 59 of your closest friends (or a random assemblage of drinkers) should have no problem fitting inside. The Inflate-a-Moe’s measures 23 feet square and stands almost 12 feet high.For a fully authentic experience, you’ll have to purchase a bunch of extra stuff — Inflatable.pub just provides the easy-to-set-up shell. On a good note, a bar, some stools, a giant mirror, a broken TV, and an old pool table will probably cost you less money than the inflatable.It’s not on sale yet, but when orders open it’ll cost you $4500 plus shipping. If you don’t have that kind of cash laying around you can probably get a loan. Just make sure you have collateral, so the lender doesn’t have to break your legs in advance.There’s no word yet on whether Inflatables.pub plans to do an upscale inflatable Meaux or a kid-friendly Uncle Moe’s Family Feedbag…last_img read more

Boss of Xbox in Japan resigns following terrible Xbox One sales

first_imgXbox consoles and Japan have never really got along very well, and regardless of the hardware generation, both Sony and Nintendo have always outsold Microsoft there. So even if Microsoft had produced the perfect next-gen console last year, it would have struggled to sell in Japan. But the Xbox One was far from perfect, and sales of the console in Japan haven’t just been bad, they’ve been absolutely terrible.The Xbox One launched there in December and only managed to sell 23,562 units during its first 4 days on sale. That was not a great sign when you consider the PS4 sold 309,000 units, and the Wii U 308,000 units during their respective launch weeks. However, the launch has turned out to be the high point of Xbox One sales so far, with only 776 being sold last week (PS4 sold 12,400 and Wii U sold 9,600).So it probably won’t come as much of a surprise to hear that the boss of Xbox in Japan, Takashi Sensui, has resigned his position. He isn’t leaving Microsoft, but no longer feels capable of leading the Xbox division.To be fair to Sensui, he didn’t have much to work with as there isn’t any system-selling games available for the Xbox One that will attract lots of Japanese gamers. They can pick up Titanfall, Dead Rising, Forza, Ryse, Sunset Overdrive, Minecraft, and Halo, but there’s no must-have game there. The Xbox 360 launch suffered because some key Japan-friendly titles missed the launch (Dead or Alive 4, Enchant Arm), but this time Microsoft has relied much more heavily on Western titles to sell the machine. Clearly it hasn’t worked.Microsoft can turn this situation around, but it needs some big Xbox One exclusives that are highly appealing to a Japanese audience. But even then, it would take something like an Xbox exclusive Dragon Quest RPG to attract lots of players to the platform quickly.last_img read more

Amazon Google Race to Get Your DNA Into the Cloud

first_img This story originally appeared on Reuters Register Now » 6 min read June 5, 2015 Amazon.com Inc is in a race against Google Inc to store data on human DNA, seeking both bragging rights in helping scientists make new medical discoveries and market share in a business that may be worth $1 billion a year by 2018.Academic institutions and healthcare companies are picking sides between their cloud computing offerings – Google Genomics or Amazon Web Services – spurring the two to one-up each other as they win high-profile genomics business, according to interviews with researchers, industry consultants and analysts.    That growth is being propelled by, among other forces, the push for personalized medicine, which aims to base treatments on a patient’s DNA profile. Making that a reality will require enormous quantities of data to reveal how particular genetic profiles respond to different treatments.Already, universities and drug manufacturers are embarking on projects to sequence the genomes of hundreds of thousands of people. The human genome is the full complement of DNA, or genetic material, a copy of which is found in nearly every cell of the body.Clients view Google and Amazon as doing a better job storing genomics data than they can do using their own computers, keeping it secure, controlling costs and allowing it to be easily shared.The cloud companies are going beyond storage to offer analytical functions that let scientists make sense of DNA data. Microsoft Corp. and International Business Machines are also competing for a slice of the market. The “cloud” refers to data or software that physically resides in a server and is accessible via the internet, which allows users to access it without downloading it to their own computer.Now an estimated $100 million to $300 million business globally, the cloud genomics market is expected to grow to $1 billion by 2018, said research analyst Daniel Ives of investment bank FBR Capital. By that time, the entire cloud market should have $50 billion to $75 billion in annual revenue, up from about $30 billion now.”The cloud is the entire future of this field,” Craig Venter, who led a private effort to sequence the human genome in the 1990s, said in an interview. His new company, San Diego-based Human Longevity Inc, recently tried to import genomic data from servers at the J. Craig Venter Institute in Rockville, Maryland.The transmission was so slow, scientists had to resort to sending disks and thumb drives by FedEx and human messengers, or “sneakernet,” he said. The company now uses Amazon Web Services.So does a collaboration between Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. and Pennsylvania-based Geisinger Health Systems to sequence 250,000 genomes. Raw DNA data is uploaded to Amazon’s cloud, where software from privately-held DNAnexus assembles the millions of chunks into the full, 3-billion-letter long genome.DNAnexus’s algorithms then determine where an individual genome differs from the “reference” human genome, the company’s chief scientist Dr. David Shaywitz said, in hopes of identifying new drug targets.Hosting for FreeShowing how important Google and Amazon view this business, and how they hope to use existing customers to lure future ones, each is hosting well-known genomics datasets for free.Neither company discloses the amount of genomics data it holds, but based on interviews with analysts and genomic scientists, as well as the companies’ own announcements of what customers they’ve won, Amazon Web Services may be bigger.Data from the “1000 Genomes Project,” an international public-private effort that identified genetic variations found in at least 1 percent of humans, reside at both Amazon and Google “without charge,” said Kathy Cravedi of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), one of the project’s sponsors.Other paying clients with a more specific focus are picking sides.Google, for instance, won a project from the Autism Speaks foundation to collect and analyze the genomes of 10,000 affected children and their parents for clues to the genetic basis of autism.Another customer is Tute Genomics, whose database of 8.5 billion human DNA variants can be searched for how frequently any given variant appears, what traits it’s associated with and how people with a certain variant respond to particular drugs.Amazon is hosting the Multiple Myeloma Foundation’s project to collect complete-genome sequences and other data from 1,000 patients to identify new drug targets. It also won the Alzheimer’s Disease Sequencing Project, which has similar aims.Amazon charges about $4 to $5 a month to store one full human genome, and Google about $3 to $5 a month. The companies also charge for data transfers or computing time, as when scientists run analytical software on stored data.Amazon’s database-analysis tool, Redshift, costs 25 cents an hour or $1,000 per terabyte per year, the company said. A terabyte is 1 trillion bytes, or 1,000 gigabytes, about enough to hold 300 hours of high-quality video.Genetic GoldAnother part of the cloud services’ pitch to would-be customers is that their analytic tools can fish out genetic gold – a drug target, say, or a DNA variant that strongly predicts disease risk – from a sea of data. Any discoveries made through such searches belong to the owners of the data.”On the local university server it might take months to run a computationally-intense” analysis, said Alzheimer’s project leader Dr. Gerard Schellenberg of the University of Pennsylvania. “On Amazon, it’s, ‘how fast do you need it done?’, and they do it.”Another selling point is security. Universities are “generally pretty porous,” said Ryan Permeh, chief scientist at cybersecurity company Cylance Inc., of Irvine, California, and the security of federal government computers is “not at the top of the class.”   While academic and pharmaceutical research projects are the biggest customers for genomics cloud services, they will be overtaken by clinical applications in the next 10 years, said Google Genomics director of engineering David Glazer.Individual doctors will regularly access a cloud service to understand how a patient’s genetic profile affects his risk of various diseases or his likely response to medication.”We are at that transition point now,” Glazer said.Matt Wood, general manager for Data Science at Amazon Web Services, sees cloud demand in genomics now as “a perfect storm,” as the amount of data being created, the need for collaboration and the move of genomics into clinical care accelerate.Experts on DNA and data say without access to the cloud, modern genomics would grind to a halt.Bioinformatics expert Dr. Atul Butte of the University of California, San Francisco, said that now, when researchers at different universities are jointly working on NIH and other genomic data, they don’t have to figure out how to make their computers talk to each other. In March, NIH cleared the way for major research on the cloud when it began allowing scientists to upload important genomic data.”My response was, it’s about time,” Butte said.(Reporting by Sharon Begley and Caroline Humer; Editing by Michele Gershberg and John Pickering) Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.
